* Really, in pretty much every sport in international competition you will see this in the metric measurements because the original measurements were made in English.

* It happens again in ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines''. While John Connor hides in his mother's coffin during an escape from the graveyard, the Terminator fires over 700 rounds and destroys several police vehicles. The heads-up display still reads "HUMAN CASUALTIES - 000".

* One of Music/{{Hyadain}}'s ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'' songs involving Quick Man has him wondering how many seconds it will be until he sees Mega Man again, then he casually rattles off a count of 780,210 seconds, which is fully in character with his depiction as a hurrying, worrying, time-obsessed android.

*** Defied in one episode that dealt with Janeway taking a group of lesser known crew members on a away mission to get to know them better. One of them admitted that she has a really hard time keeping up with all the insane calculations and tech stuff that comes second nature to everyone else. In the climax of the episode they were racing away from a shockwave and she counted down the seconds until it hit them, when she reached zero everyone flinched preparing for impact. When nothing happened they all looked at her and she said "More or less." and ''then'' the shockwave hit them.

* Dnerd in ''TheBOTSMaster'' often spouted off really precise statistics, though this took a backseat to his being completely incapable of carrying a standard conversation.

*** Bashir becomes insufferable for this after it was revealed he was genetically engineered. Even his actor hated it. He provides the likelihood of the success of the Dominion in the Dominion War to two decimal places. For reference, the Dominion War is a massive conflict involving four of the most powerful organizations in the galaxy. He also uses this trope to calculate travel times in a damaged ship faster than the computer could, despite it making no sense for him to be able to calculate this without being some kind of warp-travel/impulse-travel expert, never mind it being an enemy ship they barely understand the workings of in the first place. It's even lampshaded by characters in-universe how unnatural he is being. It didn't stop the writing staff from continuing to do it, however.
